Long nights, early mornings — it’s tough being a student sometimes. On top of the large workload, you have to think about the cost of tuition, materials, and all the other odds and ends that accompany college life. That’s why we want the hard work you put into your projects to be worth more than just a good grade, so we’re launching the third annual Vectorworks Design Scholarship. Now your all-nighters can score you up to $10,000 USD, a major resume booster, and free publicity that will get you noticed by potential employers.
Applying is an easy two-step process. First, submit your best individual or group project, whether you completed it for a class assignment or if it’s a project you worked on just for fun. Then, just answer three questions in 150 words or less each. Another major bonus is that you can enter as many times as you’d like. We’ll accept entries from students currently enrolled in an accredited design program and registered for at least six credits, or students who have graduated during the 2015 or 2016 school term.
After you apply, you can sit back and relax until Friday, August 18, 2017, the day winners are announced. The program includes two rounds of judging. Notable panels of judges from around the world will evaluate submissions based on design integrity, originality, the effective use of computer technology, and communication of design vision. First round winners will receive $3,000 USD and the opportunity to compete for the grand prize Richard Diehl Award, worth an additional $7,000 USD. Plus, if you win, your school will receive free Vectorworks design software and complimentary training for faculty and students, basically earning you some seriously good karma with your school.
So put your ramen-fueled all-nighters to good use and apply for the Vectorworks Design Scholarship before the final deadline of July 15, 2017. Make sure you share your excitement with us after submitting using #FundMyVision on social media.
